Regular "black tea" from the orient is fairly high, about .5 mg F per cup (Dosage and sources but I don't give a source, I can dig that up for you if you want it).
I'm already 25% complete. Only 150 more entries to go!

The Weirdland stuff is interesting, but it doesn't have a medicinal benefit per se, so I wouldn't be able to include it in the book. Might be interesting to look at for Sheets and giggles though.
